Role of Public Opinion

Shifting public opinion towards cannabis

Shifting public opinion towards cannabis is a significant driver in the rescheduling debate. Over the past decades, there has been a noticeable shift in how the public views cannabis, with increasing support for its medical use and even full legalization.

This change in public opinion is reflected in various public opinion polls and surveys, which show a growing acceptance of cannabis. This shift has been influenced by a combination of factors, including increased awareness of medical research, personal experiences with medical cannabis, and changing societal attitudes towards drug use.

Understanding public opinion is crucial for policymakers as it reflects the societal context in which they operate. The Pew Research Center offers extensive survey data and analysis on public opinion regarding cannabis, which can be accessed at Pew Research Center.
